The Skinny Tree

I must admit ~ the skinny  slender tree fits into the corner nicely and all the plastic and other non-breakable ornaments fill it right up.
This is Mandy's new ornament this year.  We found it at Pier 1. 
Isn't it the best purple bird you've ever seen!?
This is Bill's ~ he likes bird ornaments.  I think this fluffy little owl qualifies.  He came from Pier 1 as well.
I buy an ornament for Ronny every year ~ Mandy and I decided this sparkly train ornament was the perfect choice for 2010.  It's another Pier 1 find.  
Below is the ornament I bought for Ronny in 1975. That would have been his first Christmas.  Hard to believe that this little airplane is 35 years old!

It looks like there's plenty of room beneath the skinny slender tree for ALL our Christmas packages...
...and look!  It has room for the sweet little 2 1/2 year old who woke up Christmas morning at Gramma's house.  What a special blessing that was!
I guess the slender tree was definitely the right choice this year!

Your tree is so pretty and the collection of ornaments are awesome. I love that little plane and the owl is so cute. That must have been so much fun having Charlotte there Christmas morning. I can just hear the squeals of excitement when she saw all those gifts around the tree

Marie, your tree is beautiful! I especially love the picture of Miss Charlotte opening her gift. I do miss having little ones in the house this time of year.

Hope your staying warm,
